The actress says she drinks tequila during filming of sex scenes as it’s hard for her to do it with a stranger.

“What’s nice about having a partner who understands the business… is that he understands what it takes to do it,” Alba shared.

“I’m working 16 hours a day, it’s not glamorous, it’s pretty intense.”

 

“When you’re choosing to want to be with someone in that way, it’s very intimate,” she continued.

“You’re breathing on someone, it’s all there, you’re smelling the skin… You want to choose who you’re doing that with, and you gotta really pretend.”

It’s disgusting most of the time because [costars] are usually a stranger,” Alba also added.

Bad Santa character is the absolute worst Santa ever. So, to properly play such a man, Billy Bob was getting drunk. As he told Film 4, “Even in a comedy, if you’re going to play a guy like this, you can’t be sort of drunk, you know? And I wasn’t sort of drunk. You have to go completely into it.”

Shia LaBeouf told the tabloid Page Six that, while playing a moonshiner in the Lawless movie, he, well… drunk a lot of moonshine. According to LaBeouf, his co-star, Mia Wasikowska was so spooked by his drunken aggressiveness, she even called her lawyer to try to get out of filming the movie.

But LaBeouf says he didn’t mean it that way. It’s just, “when I showed up on set … my f**king eyes looked like this and my face … had that drunk bloat that I needed, that I couldn’t have if that wasn’t going on.” Basically saying that he couldn’t have faked it, he needed to be drunk to play effectively.

There were a couple of completely improvised moments during the filming of Fight Club. For example, a scene where drunk Durden and The Narrator smack golf balls from their house.

One day, Norton and Pitt had gotten drunk and started smacking golf balls at the catering trucks just for fun. Fincher, the director of the movie, saw them and thought that it fits their characters perfectly and decided to shoot it.

On the DVD commentary, Pitt recalls, “I do remember that we were semi-trashed here.”

It’s never easy to film a sex scene in a movie, especially if it’s an actor’s first time, especially with a married man. That’s the case with Jennifer Lawrence, who got “really, really drunk” before filming their sex scene with Chris Pratt.

Afterward, Lawrence said, “I was like, ‘What have I done? I don’t know.’ And he was married. And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach.”

 

Margot Robbie in ‘Wolf of Wall Street’

Margot Robbie told this to The New York Times about filming a naked scene in Wolf of Wall Street, “My first racy scene was the standing in the doorway, totally naked … So that was diving in headfirst. And I was petrified. I’d come to work that morning and I was shaking, so scared, like, ‘I can’t do this.'”

But then, a member of the crew brought a flask of tequila, “And I was like, ‘it’s 9 in the morning! And he’s like, ‘We’re in New York!’ So I was like, ‘Okay, hook a brother up!'”

So, she ended up doing three shots. “It really helped stop my hands shaking, and gave me a little boost of confidence.” And gave her advice to people, “Acting 101: three shots of tequila, and you’ll be fine.”

When Daniel Radcliffe was filming his sixth Harry Potter movie, he got addicted to alcohol. He told British GQ, “I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff … There were a few years when I was just enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me.”

It got really serious. “In the last three years of drinking, I blacked out nearly every time. Blacking out was my thing.”

Nevertheless, he tried to keep the filming and his addictions separate. He told Heat Magazine, “I can honestly say I never drank at work on Harry Potter. I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes.”

When you’re in a situation when you have to kiss a girl for the first time, naked in a pool surrounded by a film crew, one or two cocktails won’t hurt.

Wild Things star Denise Richards told Entertainment Weekly, “We were shooting at night and I just sat there and thought, ‘It’s four o’clock in the morning. I’m half-naked in a swimming pool. I’m making out with Neve Campbell. What am I doing here?”

The producers weren’t messing around, “They asked if I was okay French-kissing Neve on camera. Usually, it’s that pretend movie kiss, but they wanted a kiss kiss. I thought, ‘Okay, I’m sure she has nice lips.'”

And that was exactly the moment drinks came in. “Neve and I went into her trailer and shared a pitcher of margaritas before we did the scene,” she said. “Neither of us had ever kissed another girl. … Everyone has a first time.”

Later she told Rolling Stones, “It was fun … We just sorta went in and did it. Actually, we mixed margaritas and brought a bottle of wine in my trailer and got drunk first.”
